Fasting can be a tool for weight loss but is not necessarily any better than simply reducing caloric intake.
So why do people seem to lose weight with IF?
When it comes to any diet or plan, the reason people lose weight is more about the caloric intake and awareness of food, portions, etc., rather than the specific diet they are following.
If you don’t eat till noon but consume 2,000 calories in the evening for dinner it probably won’t be effective.
If it fits your lifestyle and you enjoy it go for it, but if not don’t sweat it! It is not the key to weight loss, a caloric deficit is.
